In 2008, Duke Farms installed a webcam on a tree adjacent to a Bald Eagle nest to provide a live look at the daily lives of the eagles. In partnership with The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, lesson plans were created to facilitate place-based educational opportunities for students. Between the general public and classrooms up and down the east coast, the Duke Farms Eagle Cam has many fans – over 10 million viewers and growing!
Eagle Kits for the Classroom
We've compiled all of our eagle-themed lessons, several storybooks and field guides, life-sized replicas of an eagle egg, skull, and talon, a life-sized wingspan cutout and vinyl eagle photo and even an eagle costume! Eagle Kits are free for educators to borrow for up to three weeks at a time.
Eagle Cam Lesson Plan Contest
Duke Farms and the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ are offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to classroom teachers…. One lucky teacher will be selected to join Duke Farms staff and NJ eagle biologists for the spring bald eagle chick banding in May. Our winner will join scientists in the field as they take measurements on chicks to help diagnose the health of NJ’s eagle population!
